Vetiveria zizanioides is a tall grass-like tuft plant of nearly 7 ft in height. It prefers tropical regions, as it lacks the capacity to tolerate frosts. It is a fast growing, drought tolerant, and very deep-rooted grass. After 15 to 18 months of sowing, the root and rhizome are harvested, washed and sun-dried for 10 days, then baled, and stored to dry for another 3 months prior to distillation. Vetiver Essential Oil is steam distilled from the roots of a lengthy perennial. The color of the oil is amber to brownish. It has a sweet and very heavy, woody, earthy aroma.
